Discovering The Father’s Will
SOLONIA: (Angel of the Garden of Eden)-(T/R-Daniel): Greetings, precious young ones. It is your loving sister, Solonia, once again, for Lesson Number 2 in your continued personal preparation for what is coming. Our last lesson was concerning “Loving the Truth.” There is another translation for the term, “Loving the Truth,” and that is what tonight’s lesson will be about. And the translation is, “Actively Seeking Father’s Will”, for truly that is what you are doing when you are in love with Truth.
Discovering Father’s Will is not something you do by talking or by reading or by listening, although these indeed can and do lead you in the direction of discovering Our Father’s will for you, but the Truth of discovering Father’s Will is acquired only through personal experience. You can say, “I Know that is Father’s Will for me,” but if you have not experienced the reality of this, first hand, then regardless of how true it may be in potential, it is but a statement. It has not the power to personally affect your life and the lives of those whom you touch. Seeking Father’s Will must always be an active and voluntary undertaking.
The discovery of Father’s Will is not something that falls from the sky into your lap. Also, it is not something that comes to you out of the blue and says, “This is it.” Father’s Will is revealed in the act of making choices. All, from the lowest to the highest of the children of God, must discover the Father’s will through the act of making personal choices. No one may suppose to decide what is Our Father’s Will for another; only for themselves is it possible and profitable. One may speculate, and indeed we may encourage you to speculate upon the out- workings of Father’s Will on a broader scale, for in this way are you occasionally able to perceive the steps in Father’s Will unfolding for the big picture. Part of the joy of higher life is in this discovery of how Father’s Will unfolds–often times, according to one’s perceptions, but most usually, not.
The fun, if you will, of discovery is in recognizing that our own perceptions-albeit somewhat misaligned with reality-are indeed parallel to the True Will of Our Father and this discovery, for those of us on a higher plane, is a true experience of humor. We enjoy discovering how far we were off as well as how closely we were on. Father’s Will is Supreme over all. Indeed, it is truly infinite. Aligning one’s self with Father’s Will wholeheartedly reveals great and higher Truths. Love of Truth brings a greater desire for what truly is Father’s Will.
Do not fear to seek for those things in life that will make your life more productive and even more comfortable. Fear not to step in any direction toward the betterment of your life, for assuredly it is these choice steps-these decision steps-that put you in active situations wherein you Can discover what is Father’s Will for you and your direction. Be willing at all times to discover that what you seek may Not be Father’s Will. Be unattached as much as possible to outcomes. Attachment to outcomes in a situation may inhibit your receptive ability to be able to truly discover what may or may not have been Father’s Will.
Seek the Truth, even Crave the Truth, but do not seek to define or mold the Truth.
Every time you have an opportunity to make a decision, to make a choice, ask your Father to reveal His Will to you in the matter. It need not be about large and grandiose matters-and yet, for these also, should you do this-but for the little ones, for the every day choices, “What is your Will for me, Father? Which of these choices would best serve your Will?” And when you feel you have decided upon the one that would best serve Our Father’s Will, then step towards it eagerly, for though you may eventually discover that perhaps it was not Our Father’s Will, at least as you are able to discern it, you indeed were provided a great experiential opportunity for learning.
Always is there a gift in the process, if you can but recognize it and claim it. Never will your sincere steps lead you into a situation in where there is Not a divine gift from our beloved Creator, but discovering the Truth-truly discovering Father’s Will-must be your motivation if you are to greatly benefit from the experience.
I know you have experienced these things in your lives, even many times, and yet if you would truly prepare yourself in the best way possible to be ready for that which is approaching, then these experiences must indeed become an all-the-time occurrence. They must one day become a natural part of you. You know of what I speak. Even, you have lived times wherein this was a seemingly unbroken fact of life, and yet always will there be new challenges, new exercises wherein you must learn once more how to make the quest for Father’s Will be the all-encompassing quest for life itself. I assure you it is the eternal quest, for we all must experience this in our way, and it is the flavor of achieving it that feeds the craving for the discovery of more of it.
You may think that unconditionally loving Truth and actively seeking Father’s Will might be the only lessons you would need to learn for the great preparation, and indeed they do encompass all lessons. And yet there are others that will be forthcoming. So, continue in your preparation, dear ones. There is much more to come. I love you all dearly and I will say good night until the next time. It is an honor to serve; a great honor.
SOLONIA: (T/R-Daniel): If you truly wish to prepare yourselves for the incredible opportunities of service to Michael, and indeed to our infinite Father, then an incredible exercise-even more so for it to be an integral part of your life-is to go about comforting others; comforting one another to be sure; comforting those whom you already love, of course. And yet, at All times when you are among your other brothers and sisters of this world are you given opportunities to comfort another fellow child of God. It requires you to be in loving awareness of those about you and, a desire to share a piece of Our Father’s Love with them.
This is your sister Solonia and again I am here for another lesson about preparation. When you come into personal contact with another brother or sister whom you do not know-it could be the clerk or a customer in the store; it could be a car salesman or a mechanic, or any of the wide numbers of people whom you may meet in the day-it is going about your business, As you are going about Our Father’s business. Being in service to another through the gift of offering comfort may be as simple as, a genuine understanding smile, a look of recognition, of caring, a look of compassion, an acknowledgment of their service or their value. Many are the ways that you can offer the service of comfort to those “as you pass by.”
You do it already, most of you, when you think about it. Often times you do it unconsciously, as a matter of course because of who you are. And yet, as things progress, the need for these acts of kindness and comforting will grow. It may require you to go about this business, this service, quite consciously as Well as unconsciously. It may require you to at All times, look for that opportunity to serve, to be of assistance, to be a brother or sister, to be a comfort to one who appears needing it. Again, it is but a gift of Our Father’s Love that you share, for when you step out in service for Our Father, be assured that He will guide you and assist you in your efforts.
There is much confusion in this world at this time. In times of transition this is a natural result. And this, my dear ones, is a time of great and grand transition. Truly is there the beginnings of a Spiritual Renaissance beginning upon your world, and as such, those who resist it, do so with somewhat more aggression lest they lose hold of the way of life that gives them power in the material realm. This is what gets reported. This is what you are bombarded with and yet, I tell you truthfully that the percentage of those who reject the better way is far, far smaller than it may appear.
All of you who truly know that you are sons and daughters of our beloved and Almighty Father have a duty, a responsibility, and in my eyes, the greatest privilege to be as loving comforters to those who are unsure, to those who are easily swayed by what they hear, to those who do not yet know the sweetness of being God’s beloved child. Even those who may seem to you angry, who more is in need of comfort?
Practice this comforting one another, my dear friends. Practice as if you are training for the Olympics.
Become good at it. Become good With it. Worry not about who will comfort you, while you are about comforting others. I assure you, Father will inspire those who will provide your comfort, if you but allow it. Even each of You, my dear students, is in need of comforting. It is a nourishment which all spiritual beings require, and oft-times you provide a service of comfort as you accept one.
Okay then, it is time to go into training. Let the games begin. Good night, dear hearts.
Focus On The Moment At Hand
SOLONIA: (T/R-Daniel): Greetings precious young ones. It is your elder sister Solonia. I so appreciate you making the time to converse with me.
There is something that it would behoove all of you to begin consciously practicing, and that would be on Focusing your Attention, your Attentiveness, to the moment at hand.
When you look upon the life of our beloved Master Jesus, you discover that he was expert at fully and completely focusing his attention. There has not lived on this world one who was so accomplished at this, and I would tell you that he accomplished this within the human side of his nature. He learned this and practiced it as a man among men.
Whoever had the fortune to be in his immediate presence, experienced the supreme satisfaction of having the Master’s whole and devoted attention. Nothing in the world seemed to be of as much importance as the individual person that he was with at the moment. When he was in a group of people, each person there felt that they had his full attention. The satisfaction that one experiences from this exhibition of loving interest immediately begins to infuse them with Spirit and entices the Soul into action. People genuinely felt his love. They felt their own value, even when they may have felt that they had none. His look of compassionate understanding was enough to reveal to the other that indeed, they were valued by Him.
Jesus was always focused; always attentive to the task at hand, or the person at hand. And this is because he knew that when the Father chanced to put this person in his presence, through the circumstances of life, that indeed in that moment that was the most important person in the world for him. This level of focused loving attention that the Master lived in his every moment was made possible, because in every moment his focused attention was on our Eternal Father. He was always aware of the Father’s Presence in every act of goodness and caring, and in all that was beautiful. Jesus was able to do this because his love was so genuine and personal. It was his attentiveness, his focus, which allowed him to recognize how he may be in service to his brothers and sisters, and it was because of the unconditional-ness that people felt of his love, that they were able to open their souls to him so freely.
Yes indeed dear children, it would be no small feat to be able to focus your attentions, your love, your compassion as fully and completely as did the Master Jesus, and yet, I am here to tell you that truly, it is not beyond your abilities. Whatever your hand finds to do, give it your full attention. Whomever you chance to be with, give them your full focus. When you practice the stillness, this attentive focus is what you seek with our Father. There is so much skipping of your minds from thing to thing, person to person, event to event, past to future. Always is there so very much going on, as you would say. I know it is not a simple thing for you to accomplish, and yet I would encourage you to wholeheartedly practice every time you think about it. And then, I would encourage you to practice Thinking about it.
The present moment is the only place where any of us may experience our Beloved Father; The Eternal Now. Focus dear ones. Practice focusing your attention. The Love that you experience from this experience is worth so far much more than any amount of effort that may be required to attain it. The better you get at it, the better your Service to humankind will be, and so also will grow the level of your Spiritual Maturity and Understanding. When your focused attention is upon the Heavenly Father, then everything and everyone else that you experience, is perceived far more clearly and purely. It is as if you could see, where before you could not.
My love is with you dear ones. Where you focus and place your attention, is where your heart and soul will undoubtedly follow. Let it be upon Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Love. Goodnight.
